I don't know what to make of this.

I copied and paste from crash.net:
Stoner elected to quit MotoGP in May last year, revealing that he nolonger had the passion for the sport in a press conference held at Le Mans prior to the French round of the campaign.

Confirming his move to V8's in an interview in the Sunday Telegraph, Stoner reiterated the reasons why he had elected to walk away from the motorcycle world, although he refused to rule out one day making areturn –even if there is 'no chance' as it stands.

"Injuries weren't any part of why I retired, or that Iwanted to do new things," he said. "Family wasn't a part of it either. I just fell out of love with the sport. We had a lack of respect from alot of people around the sport and I didn't like the direction it was taking.

"We got spat at [by fans], they tried to knock us off scooters going from the motor homes to the pits, everything like that. Unfortunately they didn't like my honesty in the paddock. That was part of it, but more it was the direction of the sport.
